I just have a couple questions. first, How can you tell if one mushroom is healthier than another of the same species. (I'm looking at Hygrophorus miniatus) Does the thickness of the stem have anythign to do w/ it?
And does anybody know if the pH of the soil has anything to do w/ where mushrooms like to pop up??

I don't know the growing conditions of Hygrophorus miniatus, but not very many mushrooms grow from soil. Most are growing from something organic like wood or dung. I'm not sure as to whether or not you can tell the health of a mushroom. There are too many variables. It depends on the abundance of nutrients that are avaliable in the medium that its growing on. It also depends on weather conditions, a lot of mushrooms have to have a certain temperature, and amount of moisture to grow, if these are correct, you won't see any friuts(the actual mushroom). Only under the perfect conditions do mycelium produce friuting bodies... You may want to look into the mycology(study of mushrooms) a little bit more before you start this project, or you may even want to ask some of the folks over at the growing forums.

Hope I helped ya out a little bit.

Peace out,
